Hot or Not?

Recently, it has come to my attention that not everyone agrees on what is deemed "attractive". Okay, okay, I've always known this. But this fact was driven home again the other day when I was happily surfing the net, going from man candy blog post to man candy blog post, and I came upon a site that stopped me in my virtual tracks. Ooohhh, why did it stop you in your tracks, Sarah? I'm glad you asked.

I want to tell you it was because I stumbled upon a tasty hunk of man candy that caused all the saliva to dry up in my mouth and my throat to stick shut. I want to tell you it was because he was so damn hot he caused my monitor to fog and I had to toss my laptop aside and run in search of my husband. Yeah, that's what I want to tell you. This, however, would be a lie.

You see, I just don't understand what the blog owner found attractive in this guy. In fact, my reaction was more along the lines of laughing hysterically, then emailing the picture to my writer pals under the heading: Funny or Hot? Soon, the the discussion title morphed into Hot or Not?

We had so much fun with this one, that I thought I would share it with you. So here you go... 

Hot or Not?

2012 Readers Favorite Award Finalist

With blueberry season in Michigan drawing to a close, things at my day job have finally slowed enough for me to dip my toe back into the writing/blogging world. And let me tell you, I have sorely missed writing! I've also missed having the time and energy to share new accomplishments with you, my readers. So today, I thought I'd share an exciting one.

A few weeks ago I received word that AFTER MIDNIGHT is a finalist in the 2012 Readers Favorite Awards. Wahoo! I just had to share.

A new member of the family.

It's been a few months since our beloved miniature schnauzer, Pearl, suffered a stroke and had to be put to sleep.

Sercateps Ebony Pearl

The first dog my husband and I got as a couple, and the smartest girl we've ever known, Pearl will always hold a special place in my heart. But as I seem to do routinely, I decided that it was time for a new dog to come and live with us. A special dog, one that needed a new home -  a rescue. And if that wasn't enough, I was thinking a dog like the one I lost before Pearl - a lovely shih tzu we called Tils - would be perfect.

 Matilda Marie

So I got online and I began searching. I found a handful of beautiful dogs who needed to be re-homed because of financial difficulties with their current families. I found even more who where homeless. But I couldn't find the right dog. The dog who called to me ~ who's photo told me instantly that she was the one meant to join our family.

Until I stumbled upon this one...

Zoey ~ a one year old Shih Tzu/Pekinese mix that needed a new home.
Which I immediately gave her. :-)
Isn't she sweet?
